Tools like our PC Pandora make it easy to find that safe, happy medium between teens being able to freely use the Internet socially, and parents having access to the truth about their child’s Internet activity.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
The holidays are over and it’s time to welcome the new year. The big gifts are opened and your kids are surely more connected to the Internet than they were just a week ago. Pandora Corporation, the maker of PC Pandora computer monitoring software, is reminding parents that it’s not too late to make sure those new gifts are safeguarded with the proper software.
“Parents tend to forget that giving your child a new computer is the same as giving them a doorway to the world, and visa versa,” explains Pandora Corp. co-founder James Leasure. “It is absolutely essential for parents to have a tool in place that will monitor who their child is talking to on the Internet, and let them know how their child is interacting with others and representing themselves on the Internet.”
In today’s wired world, tweens and teens live virtually through their computers and internet connected devices. Between increasing amounts of schoolwork and peer pressure to be social online, today’s youth is connected at all hours of the day. Leasure says 2012 needs to be the year parents wake up and really learn what their kids are doing on the Internet.
“Parents must adapt to the times and adopt a new set of rules and have new discussions with their kids,” he states. “Talking to them about Internet safety and outfitting those new computers with monitoring software is a must. There is no reason for parents to be left in the dark about their child’s Internet activity.”
PC Pandora is computer monitoring software that records all user activity on a computer. First-rate monitoring capabilities take sequential snapshots of everything that happens on the computer, allowing parents to see first-hand everything their child does both on and offline. Details of user activity , including websites visited, social network activity, instant messenger chats, peer-2-peer files shared, keystrokes, programs accessed, Internet search queries and more, are made available in text-based files and easy-to-read charts. In less than 10 minutes, parents can verify their children are using their new toys safely or uncover a situation that needs parental attention.
“PC Pandora is essentially a DVR for your child’s computer,” says Leasure. “If your child is talking to strangers on social networks, creating and maintaining multiple social network profiles, visiting websites you don’t approve of, downloading illegal music and movies, or falling victim to or – even worse – acting as a cyberbully, you will know about it if you are monitoring their internet activity.”
In addition, the built-in IRIS feature can send the text-based data files right to a parent’s email, and the PC Pandora LIVE! add-on allows parents to check screenshots and adjust parental controls though a secure web login. Both are invaluable features for working parents who can’t always be home when their kids are online.
Leasure adds: “Conversation, education and awareness are essential, but a child with an Internet-connected device can still lead to unwanted and potentially harmful situations. That’s why it’s important to monitor what they are doing with those very powerful tools you place in their hands. Tools like our PC Pandora make it easy to find that safe, happy medium between teens being able to freely use the Internet socially, and parents having access to the truth about their child’s Internet activity.”
